I would like to know also. I wonder if they were on Meth or if it was a "I dare you".

I don't think that matters. Now that they have them, HANG 'EM! That bridge meant many things to a lot of people, and for these two S.O.B's to do that was uncalled for.

These people are total effing trash. The bridge was so cool, so beautiful, i can remember going when i was a kid, and then taking my kids there... it was built by hand and so long ago and was still standing which was amazing, and so many people appreciated it. But you know what, the little F'ers will get off like everyone else with a slap on the wrist. they think what they did is some kind of joke and no big deal. they have never had real consequences in their life and probably wont get them now either. bring back the bridge and bring back the lynch mob! then justice will get served! they have no shame to do such a thing

it is the same kid from springboro/conneautville. he just came back from bootcamp. him and his brothers are nothing but trouble. joshua has been in/out of trouble too and his mommy always bails him out. lets see her bail the sob out this time. its her fault for letting him get away with so much and never caring.

These are our military people?

Is Joshua and Jeff brothers?(confused on why you would say Jeff is nothing but trouble, but Joshuas mom always bails him out.)

I think that Gleason boy is the same boy that was caught for embelzing money about a yr ago from the fire dept, but got away with it for being in the service. I will have to look up more info, but the name rings a bell...

jeff & joshua are not related. jeff and his brothers are always in trouble. joshua's mom is always bailing joshua out.

For such an impact, it seems as if there would be more than just 2 people involved. Maybe Jeffs brothers (since they are always in trouble) are involved as well.

It must be nice to have a rich family like Joshuas to help bail him out....

Time will tell on what will happen, its unfortunate that such a historical landmark was destroyed ~ just glad that no-one was physically harmed in this ordeal.

At least not til these guys are walking the streets again.. It's amazing how one bridge tucked away in a valley can unite a community like it has here. There are a ton people seriously P'd off at these two and wouldn't surprise me if someone takes anger out on them. Hopefully justice will be served and they won't get out, but you can never count on that. One of these idiots was just in court a couple months ago for stealing a $150 car battery from where I work. He picked it up, walk around the back of the inside of the store and walked out the door, as if the bright yellow top of the battery wasn't noticeable. So it's no surprise he thought he'd get away with this. I still say hang them on the cliff over-looking the remnants of history gone.
